Questions and Answers

Responsibilities

We start with a minimal standard workload that includes fixed amount of work for fixed amount of money.

Standard workload for speaking partner activity includes creating 6 topics per month and checking 6 answers per day. This will take about 30 minutes a day.

Topics creating assumes 30 minutes to create one topic post.

This is covered by our training. To be simple, it’s a strict order of parts, like checking for mistakes, answering questions, and making a recording.

Examples of this activity are the posts with a yellow background in any topic:

https://natives.chat/t/rats-to-the-rescue/372/5
https://natives.chat/t/how-to-care-less/396/9

All your answers should always be typed and have a audio recording. No videos, no abridged versions of answers (for example, only text or only audio). You should provide students only with a doubled version of all answers in two forms: typed and audible.

We publish one new topic every day. But you may create your topics when it’s comfortable to you. We schedule publishing in the future ourselves.

We split the necessary number of topics between all native speakers in your language. That’s way we’ll need a small number of topics from you. That’s why your major activity will be a speaking partner activity (checking the answers, correcting and making audio recordings for your replies).

Schedule

We can start only with a part-time job. If both of our sides will be satisfied, we’ll discuss with you the possibility to enlarge your working time. You should have different sources of income.

A simple rule is that the quicker you start answering — the more answers you’ll be able to send.

Our clients are from different time zones, that’s why time difference doesn’t matter. Our chat is asynchronous, that’s why our students have no expectations to get feedback instantly.

Your payment will be proportionally reduced by the number of these days off because we have an exact number of speakers to cover the number of paid users.

Payments

We can work with you only on a freelance basis. That means: you get paid to your bank account / PayPal account / bank card. We do not provide you with anything like insurance or a guaranteed vacation. You’ll simply get paid for the job you’ve done.

Our company won’t withhold any taxes on money you received. You may need to declare and pay tax.

The triggering of a tax liability and/or reporting obligation will depend on your tax residency, the nature of the income/gains and potentially the amount.

We are not reporting this information to any tax authority.

PayPal account may help you in receiving money. You’ll be able to spend from it and your local authorities will not know about this income.

The situation differs from one person to another. Of course, living in your current place may cost more than in another place. But we search for people who are satisfied with our proposal due to their living circumstances. You can start working with us. Who knows, maybe you’ll like it and your living place will change in the future.

If you will invoice us as a freelancer, our payment will match the invoice. If you don’t need to invoice us, we simply send you money on an agreed time interval.

The type of cooperation doesn’t matter for us — it’s on your side. We can pay your invoice or simply transfer money on a regular basis.

We send international payments to bank accounts by Transferwise.com / PayPal accounts / bank cards of any country. Your current place of residence doesn’t matter.

We cover bank charges on our side, but can’t exclude any charges on your side. Of course, we can try to find some ways to make fewer conversions.

You’ll get paid for the initial post if it’s yours and for all full answers that you’ll give to students (the 1st level of discussion). All the following discussions between students and you are not paid.

This is called an initial post or a topic post. It is valued with a coefficient of 2.0 to the basic price.

It is paid. We send payments at this period on a regular basis following the regular terms.
